- If you are running your program with OpenMP* parallelization on different processors, explicitly specify the number of threads.
- To ensure that your application has deterministic behavior with OpenMP* parallelization and does not adjust the number of threads dynamically at run time, setMKL_DYNAMICandOMP_DYNAMICto FALSE. This is especially needed if you are running your program on different systems.
- If you are running your program with the Intel® Threading Building Blocks parallelization, numerical reproducibility is not guaranteed.
Strict CNR Mode
- As usual, you should align your data, even in CNR mode, to obtain the best possible performance. While CNR mode also fully supports unaligned input and output data, the use of it might reduce the performance of someIntel® MKLfunctions on earlier Intel processors. To ensure proper alignment of arrays, allocate memory for them usingmkl_malloc/mkl_calloc.
- Conditional Numerical Reproducibility does not ensure that bitwise-identical NaN values are generated when the input data contains NaN values.
- If dynamic memory allocation fails on one run but succeeds on another run, you may fail to get reproducible results between these two runs.
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
